  1. Martin says:

    Bulgaria did not knock argentina off the WC, it was Rumania in the 2nd round (3-2 y think)

    ARG-BUL was the last match of the group with both teams already qualified.

  2. Mariano Garcia says:

    Martin is correct. We were already through to the next round. I was at this game and the game against Romania at the Rose Bowl.
